Tell us what you think about proposed developer contribution to community infrastructure

Herefordshire Council has developed a preliminary draft charging schedule to be paid by developers which will raise funds in order to support new and improved infrastructure.

The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a levy that local authorities can charge on qualifying developments in their area. The Preliminary Draft Charging Schedule sets out the proposed rates for development, which will vary depending on area and type.

Once adopted, part of the money can be used to support community development. Neighbourhoods receiving development will be allocated up to 25% of the levy revenue collected in their area in order to fund the infrastructure they require.

A 6 week public consultation on the Preliminary Charging Schedule will begin Thursday 17 March finishing on Thursday 28April 2016.

Representations made after this date may not be taken into account.

If you would like to give your views, more information about the consultation can be found at:

A copy of the document and all relevant associated documents are also available to view at all information centres and libraries across the county during normal office hours.
